The lights are on
After leaving Infinity Ward to start his own game company Robotoki, former creative strategist Robert Bowling is looking to explore the greatest threat in a zombie apocalypse with his team’s first project: Human Element.
In a new interview with Game Informer, Bowling says the core objective behind Human Element is survival. “Their greatest strength is the fear that [zombies] instill in us, the survivors, that unreasonable fear. Unreasonable fear that leads us to do unreasonable things to survive," he said.
Human Element ‘s character creation system allows players to choose between three different character classes, Action, Intelligence, and Stealth, and three different identities, Survive Alone, Survive with a Partner, and Survive with a Young Child.
“How you choose to start in the world will determine how you can engage and impacts the scenarios you will be presented with on a physical and morality level.”
Human Element is slated for release on next-generation consoles, PC, mobile, and tablets in 2015.
Our 4-page feature with Bowling in our upcoming July issue provides more details on Human Element, including five additional pieces of key art. It starts hitting subscribers next week.
It seems interesting. There certainly isn't a diverging storyline zombie RPG-like game out right now.
2015!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have to survive the 2012 apocalypse now to play this game!!!!! oh wait, they found the rest of the Mayan calendar.www.csmonitor.com/.../Oldest-Mayan-calendar-found-and-it-goes-way-beyond-Dec.-12-2012-video
I can never get enough survival games.
LOOKS GOOD HOPE ITS ON PS3.....
Oh yay. More zombie games.
Hmmm another zombie game.
sounds interesting!!! CANT WAIT!!!
This sounds really cool, i like what his games gonna be like
This is a good idea. The kind of zombie game I've been waiting for.
This looks pretty cool! Nice to see a game that tries something different.
I don't care if it's zombies, I'm interested in CHOICE. this sounds so next-next gen it blows my mind. you mean, i get to pick who I survived with? how i choose to encounter enemies? THAT'S what I'm looking forward to!
I'm a sucker for zombie-apocalypse stuff.
I hope it's open world. And now I have something to look forward to go with my 720 in a few years! :D
Left 4 Dead 3 may have a bit of competition...
this is pretty bold news as it basically confirms next gen systems for 2015, and more likely 2014 (not that this wasn't heavily rumored before.
and the game also looks like it will be a similar concept as The Last of Us. not that its a bad thing, both ideas look amazing
